Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The brakes were spongy when I bought the truck, I thought no problem I'll just bleed the brakes. Bled the brakes, and then replaced all the brake pads and shoes, along with all the wheel bearings and tie rod ends and ball joints etc. Brakes are still spongy. The pedal goes pretty near to the floor before it starts to grab. I don't know if there is a fix for it short of replacing the master cylinder which is too expensive to be cost effective on this old beater. What a pile.
